Steve Mnuchin And Wife Audition For ‘Octopussy’ Remake

I don’t know if you’ve been paying attention, but Steve Mnuchin’s wife Louise Linton is kind of a piece of shit. You may remember when over the summer she made an Instagram post bragging about all the expensive designer clothes she was wearing and then attacked a woman who pointed out she was jetting around on the taxpayer’s dime by basically saying she deserves it because she’s rich.

Well, her and her husband, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, posed for a photo op with an uncut sheet of $1 bills, the first sheet to bear his name, and it went about as well as you’d expect a photo of people who think they’re better than you because they have more money taking photos inside the Treasury would go.

Which is to say it worked out great for me and not so great for the Republicans who are currently trying to pass a tax bill that fucks most of the country to give The Baroness and Destro here a big tax cut. Needless to say, “Steve Mnuchin and his supervillain wife pose with money” became a meme instantly.

A running sub-meme of this meme is pointing out that Linton is dressed almost exactly the same as Kylo Ren, the villain in the new Star Wars movies.

Also other movie villains.

This is not the same meme, but really A+ work here, guy.

Writer and actress Quinn Cummings used the opportunity to share a story about Linton, with whom she used to run in the same social circles. Big props for the turn of phrase “Marie Antoine-not,” Quinn. I’m jealous I never thought of that one.
